. joe biden says he would impeach somebody that would do what he was about to do. >> i was chairman of the judiciary committee i teach this this is something i know. i got together and to write a piece pointing out the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against 70 million people unless we are attacked. and if he does, i would move to impeach him. the house obviously would have to do that. i don't say it lightly. i say it because they should understand that what they were threatening and saying and what was adding up to be what looked like the rest of the war would be the most disastrous thing that could be done that i can think of. >> could this be more clear? >> well, here is the funny ing about this. biden presides over the senate. he would preside over his own impeachment. i suggest he come to the senate floor and reiterate his own position. he would be impeaching his administration. they need to come before a joint session of congress and lay out their case and if they want to take the nation to war they need to convince the majority of congress
at the white house. vice president joe biden is here at the white house. chuck hagel, the chairman of the joint chief, martin dempsey, so all of that giving an indication that the president is close to making a decision, but because white house officials are saying this is not about imminent or commenced operations, perhaps we will be hearing about something else. we should also note this administration was set to start briefing members of the senate today, members of the house tomorrow, to fully get them up to speed on what is happen ng syria and so, it will be interesting to find out whether or not the president's comments have any impact. the other thing we should point out and this is just a small, minor thing, is that according to a note distributed to reporters here at the white house, a telepromter has been set up in the rose garen for the president's address. i only say that because yesterday, his comments were very much off the cuff. he had some notes in front of him, but he was not reading from prepared remarks, but this statement indicates that perhaps he will be doing that this afte
vowed that they would fight any u.s. attack at all costs. vice president joe biden joined the course of top officials here in the administration saying today, that president assad and syria was responsible for these chemical attacks and vice president biden suggested there may be unilateral action that could be imminent without congressional or.n. approval. that's interesting, back in the 2008 presidential campaign, candidate biden said of then president bush, if he attacked iran without approval he should be impeached. the boston globe, we checked this, gave all of the candites in 2008 questionnaires for written questions. we checked them and one focused on whether a president could bomb iran without authorization from congress. then senator obama answered that question by saying, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. i pressed jay carney on that point today in the daily briefing and also, meanwhile, republicans like john mccain ton
the president said he would do when he was a candidate in 2007-2008. let's remember the vice president joe biden, running for president, and in 2007 he was at a new hampshire campaign event where he said as senate foreign relations committee chairman at the time, then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, try to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons and did without congressional approval, joe biden said he would personally lead impeachment charges against then president bush. we see a much different situation going on now. where they are moving forward without congressional approval. you are right. there is pressure. it is not just john cornyn who is significant. not just a rank and file, a leader, the whip, behind mitch mcconnell, the leader, number one. have you democrats as well. joe manchin of west virginia came out last might and said, mr. president, you cannot move forward with any military force without first getting a debate and vote in the house and senate. now, what is the likelihood of that? highly unlikely because we talked to officials in both parties and got lawm
and talking in those sorts of context. by yesterday, we had joe biden presenting what is largely a circumstance case that's put forth publicly by this point that is namely, we know that chemical weapons were deployed, and that the assad regime that the method to deliver those weapons. they are the only ones that could have done it, biden said there is no doubt. the report will be declassified and released perhaps as early at tomorrow morning. >> you mentioned a shift in tone. the president will be giving a speech today centered on peace commemorating the 50t 50th anniversary of martin luther king's march on washington. is there any way we could be firing rockets at syria before he delivers that speech? >> i seriously doubt that number one for the optics, number two, the u.n. in texters are on the ground. we expect the administration to release a case publicly that gets away from the circumstance case that you and i are talking about and present a more factual case, specific examples of how the assad regime went forward with this. that's what we're expecting. i don't expect this t
a moment. i'm going to revisit with you in just a moment but we have vice president joe biden who is speaking in houston before the american legion convention. let's listen in. >> everyone acknowledges their use. no one doubts that innocent men, women and children have been the victims of chemical weapons attacks in syria. and there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. for we know that the syrian regime are the only ones who have the weapons, have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons and instead of allowing u.n. inspectors immediate access, the government has repeatedly shelled the sites of the attack and blocked the investigation for five days. at president obama's direction, all of us and his national security team have been in close touch with our foreign counterparts. the president believes, and i believe, that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, wo
what we heard barack obama and joe biden as vice-presidential candidate in 2008. at one point joe biden said in 2007 if then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, separate from syria in the middle east, joe biden would lead impeachment charges against the president. they have gone a long way from that. what they're saying now, there won't be a vote in congress but that instead what the president will do is consult with congress, this phone call at 6:00 p.m. eastern and other phone calls that have already happened. there's a lot of intense action as the president faces a lot of pressure on this decision whether he will move forward or not. you heard him in the pbs interview saying it could be a shot across the bow against syria. there are military experts say a shot across the bow sounds symbolic. they wand to hear from the president directly. we haven't from him beyond the press interview and cnn interview last week directly from the military what the mission would be. >> and it's growing, bipartisan push for questions, push for answers and consultation with congress and
if hillary clinton said i'm running that joe biden necessarily backs off? how will that play out? >> i think he should give it every consideration. he is a veteran of running for president. he's a well-known commodity in this country. he brings tremendous assets to the table. >> but let's just say he does run. do you think he could beat hillary? >> it will be a competitive primary no matter who gets in the race. but i don't want to handicap the race. it's too early. i'm a neutral player, but as you know the haven't will serve as keynote speaker at tom harkins' annual steak friday. that's a big event. >> first of all, it is august of 2013. so we just need to look at the calendar here. i think this may be difficult for biden. he might test some waters, but he could be very embarrassed. a sitting vice president who doesn't have the support of the party? i don't think he would be the support of president obama. i know the clintons and obama don't get along all that well, but they need each other. and let's face it, it's because of hillary clinton that we even know who barack obama is. has she wa
, the first lady, michelle obama, also vice president joe biden and joe biden, they're expected to travel to key states to educate the public and encourage the folks to enroll in the new coverage options that are out there in america. in the meantime, the religious right spent the summer bearing false witness against obama care. these republicans have lied. >> let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. as people of faith, i'm a born again believer in jesus christ. and i believe that it is part of my duty as i an believer in christ and what he has done for me that we should do for the least of those who are in our midst. >> well, her words speak for themselves. don't they? they have threatened to shut down the government over this. >> the continuing resolution that funds congress expires on september 30th. i've publicly stated as has mike lie and marco rubio and a number of other senators that i will not vote for any continuing resolution that funds even a single penny of obama care. >> most of all
the united states government, white house, secretary kerry, joe biden, the higher the risk people say whatever the united states is saying is to support israel, western tendencies. there is all about in the mix. whatever we say is not how things are seen in the region. stuart: what is the feeling amongst muslims? one group has attacked another and killed them with poison gas. is there no repulsion here? >> most have been here before. this happened in 2007. yes, it's ironic, yes, it's hard to understand, but israel has done anything similar to what saddam hussein or asad in syria has done. there would be protests every day up and down the street, but mostly broadly muslim violence, maybe 20% of the population globally. stuart: muslims killing muslims by the millions now guessing by the hundreds, no demonstration on the street, nothing happens. we can't understand that. >> it is human nature. when the irish killed the irish, it is a different response. stuart: it is israel, america, the wicked christians, the jews. speaker that is how the middle east acts. it is easy to blame the old cr
. >> vice president joe biden heading to iowa too. biden scheduled to deliver a speech next month at the biggest democratic events of the year. senator tom harkins steak fry fundrais fundraiser. biden attended in 2007 with then presidential contenders, barack obama and hillary clinton. so far he has not ruled out a 2016 run. >> hanging out with grandma may be key to a sound mind. researchers at boston college say spending time with the grandparents is good for your mental health. when adults and grandparents have a strong emotional relationship. both have decreased symptoms of depression. strong relationships outside of the nuclear family were vital to staying mentally healthy. interesting. >> president obama is full vacation mode, week long visit to martha's vineyard. >> for president obama, vacation means golf. reporters allowed a rare shot of the president on the course. maybe the first duffer was feeling pressure. three putted the first hole. no word on the president's score. group took his time. he was on the course for five hours. was he wearing shorts. he was wearing shorts
's absence from the early primary states. we know joe biden is making a states out, but she is teasing her next stop, so what is the strategy here? >> well, look, you know, peter, as i was listening to her say those words, all that kept running through my mind is this would be exactly what you would do if you were hillary clinton and you want to run for president. which i do think it is hard for her as an unannounced candidate to go to one of these early states respect because it would be an absolute zoo. anytime she gets near one of those states, we write about it. if she goes to one of the -- she doesn't need more headlines. i think what she's doing is smart. she's giving meaty policy addresses, voters suppression, voter i.d., critical important issue to the democratic base. particularly among african-americans and hispanics. she's doing what you do if you're hillary clinton and you want to run for president. >> i want to ask you, ruth, if we can, a change of topic. the republicans, it looks like a peace treaty, between rand paul and chris christie. here was rand paul's comments this mor
don't know if joe biden is that person, quite frankly, i don't think he is. i don't know who that person would be. it's tough to know. a lot of people would love to see elizabeth warren, but i don't know that she's considered too left. i think it's considered too early in her career, and i don't get the sense that, look, she'll be in that seat for many years if she wants, elizabeth warren, and she's doing a lot of things in the senate all right. so i don't know--i don't know who that person on the left is at this point. >> john: folks, i just want to say we are, of course, winding up current tv, and it's very sad. of course, al gore intended this to be an independent liberal news channel. i'll let people debate how successful because. i think a lot of good programming happened. i thank each one of you for being part of this experiment and for being part of this show when i got to gig. i intended to surround myself with people who are smarter than me, and i thank you for being part of that. >> i don't think any of us would agree that we were better on tv than you. >> john. >>
on the other side about how this resonates for you in new orleans, but this was vice president joe biden earlier talking about one of them. take a look. >> the proposed rule requires people associated with these kinds of trusts or corporations to go through the same background check that individuals have to do. we'll end this means by which to get these most dangerous weapons to people who are not under the law allowed to own them. >> so mr. mayor, like other urban and major cities, new orleans struggles with the issue of crime. what specifically did the president say that resonated that you can take back and implement for the people of new orleans. >> first of all, the fact that he had the meeting on the day before he was going to commemorate dr. king's address, and simultaneously considering our nation as response, really indicated to us that he's serious about finding every which way we can to curb urban violence, so that spoke volumes. secondly the mayors around the country are working on the same kind of cat trophic problems, what we have said, is -- is a catastrophic event that's o
here. >>> the white house is taking new action on gun control now. have the joe biden announced would executive actions aimed at keeping more military surplus weapons out of the country and getting rid of a system that lets buyers avoid background checks by registering guns to corporations. the vice-president says the moves are simple, straightforward, and common sense, the critics say it won't keep criminals from getting guns. doug is live in washington. explain more about the plan. what is going to happen here? >> trace, it's a way for the administration to circumvent the lack of legislative well for more gun control by doing it through executive action. the first of the two new proposed regulations would end the policy where military weapons sold or handed over to u.s. allies abroad, are then reimported back into the u.s. by private sellers. the second proposed regulation would keep people who cannot pass a background check from circumventing the law by registering certain guns to a corporation or a trust. it would do so by requiring people associated with those trusts to be finger
. they are standing firm behind the president. the president went out and made phone calls to john kerry, joe biden. they finalized the decision this morning. >> we were all glued watching john kerry give this long drawn out dramatic speech about making the case for going, at least some military action, with syria and now this. why put john kerry out there on friday and then less than 24 hours later say, we're going to hold our horses a little bit here? >> reporter: that's a very good question. john kerry will be on the sunday morning talk shows tomorrow morning including state of the union. in some ways john kerry was not only talking about what he thinks and what the administration thinks, he was responding to what was happening around the world. the united nations had really in the minds of the white house had really stimmied this president. they could not go to the u.n. security council and say give us a vote for striking syria because russia was saying no. we're not going to give you that vote. the united kingdom, britain that's always there with the united states just had that traumatic vote

for him. >>> overnight vice president joe biden's son beau in a houston hospital after disorientation and weakness. the latest on this troubling news this morning. good morning from washington, tuesday august 20th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. lets get to the first read. we start overseas. former egyptian president hosni mubarak could actually be free in a few days. egyptian security forces arrested the spiritual leader of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed badie and his deputy, who was already in custody, will go on trial later this month for their alleged role of the death of protesters outside of headquarters in june. after scores of detention of top leaders, this morning the brotherhood has appoint add new figurehead. ousted president mohamed morsi remains under house arrest for a 49th day. this morning mubarak's lawyer tells nbc news his legal team is submitting a petition in court tomorrow requesting his release. they are 99% sure that he's actually going to be free even if just temporarily. nearly 1,000 egyptians died since security forces raided pro-morsi c

that, though, on wednesday, vice president joe biden, according to u.s. senior officials, was up on capitol hill briefing lawmakers, key lawmakers, on a variety of threats, including what is happening right now at these embassies. a senior u.s. official did say to reporters that part of that briefing did cover what that official called immediate threats, and the white house officials have been saying that the president has known about this threat for some time. it's probably better to assume that they've known about this longer than that meeting with the yemeni president, candy. >> right. probably, they discussed it. thanks so much, jim acosta. becky anderson, abu dhabi, barbara starr. i hope you both and all will stick with us. we want to move on to republican senator lindsey graham of south carolina. senator, first, as you watch this unfold, what does it -- what is your general impression here? this looks -- if you're an ordinary american, looks pretty scary. >> well, i had a briefing with the vice president. it is scary. al qaeda's on the rise in this part of the world. the ns

statement on monday followed up by joe biden to the american legion the next day that that was signaling that the white house is ready to go. >> and i think that the president also signal that had in his own words that he is ready to do so, but i think that that is different from actually doing it. and again, i think that the president is going to want to see how much international support he's going to have for it. >> let me ask about iran. what will iran do? there have been a lot of tweets from the new you president as well as warnings that there will be action. would you expect them to take action against israel? >> you always want to be careful with iran. we have to be careful because what we know about their system is very limited. but everything that i'm seeing from them right now suggests that they're unlikely to do something terribly provocative in response. the iranians have their own problems right now. they are under deep international sanctions, they have huge issue, their own internal problems. i don't think they are looking for a fight with the united states over syria. >>
and corporations to undergo background checks. vice president joe biden calls the new regulations simple and straightforward. >> new policies are going to help keep military grade firearms off our streets and again, it's a simple common sense way to try to reduce gun violence in america. you may recall the administration's sweeping gun laws failed in the senate earlier this year. a statement about these latest steps the spokesperson for the national rifle association says, quote: the obama administration has once again completely missed the mark when it comes to stopping violent crime. same sex couples who get married legally in the united states will be able to file joint or federal fax returns beginning next month each if they move to a state where same sex marriage is not legal. that's according to the new rules at the internal revenue service and the treasury department issuing today. this comes after the supreme court recently struck down a key part of the defense of marriage act. under these new rules, the feds say they will treat legally married same sex couples as married for al
the obama administration with people like joe biden and john kerry who spent years criticizing the bush administration for its unilateralism, doing something that true solid unilateral as opposed to things done in the bush administration like the overthrow of saddam hussein is that had dozens of coalition members with it. >> i asked neither lee. this what's the difference between doing in this way and dropping a drone on somebody in yemen, just on a kill list? >> look, there isn't any difference. the president has full constitutional authority to launch this attack against syria. >> greta: you don't think he has to seek approval? >> absolutely not. >> greta: you disagree with a lot of members of congress who want the approval. >> there is a political question whether he would be better off in getting congressional approval under the theory in on the the take off, in on the landing. but as a matter of constitutional law, there is absolutely no requirement if congress doesn't like what he does. they should cut off 00 funds. >> greta: i thought today that secretary kerry whether you agreed
operation, so you have the obama administration with people like joe biden and john kerry who spent years criticizing the bush administration for its unilateralism doing something that truly is unilateral as opposed to things done in the bush administration like the overthrow of saddam hussein that had dozens of coalition members along with them. >> what's the difference between doing it this way and dropping a drone on somebody in yemen that's on a kill list? >> there isn't any difference. the president has full constitutional authority to launch this attack against syria. >> you don't think he has to seek approval? >> absolutely not. >> you disagree with members of congress that want that approval. >> there's a political question whether he would be better off getting congressional approval under the theory in on the takeoff, in on the landing, but as a matter of constitutional law, there's absolutely no requirement. if congress doesn't like what he does, they should cut off the funds. >> i thought today secretary kerry, whether you agreed with him or not, looked presidential. i thought
as a candidate in 2007, 2008, both he and joe biden said specifically that no president can unilaterally go to war without congressional authority. today he tempered his words some and said, well, i've got the authority to do whatever i want, but i'm choosing to go to congress. well i don't see it that way. i don't believe he does have the authority, but presidents have in the past usurped this authority. the bottom line is, once he comes to congress, if it's voted down in congress, i believe that he will be stopped. i will do everything in my power to stop and to have the vote go against involves us in syria. the ram factiifications may be r america, bad for israel. i think there are a lot of things that could wind up happening in the middle east with our involvement that would be unintended and may make the situation worse. >> before i let you go, september was already a very crowded month for all of the things you have to do, just to kick them down. debt ceiling, farm bill, the nsa and the ever-looming implementation of obamacare and now syria on top of that. how will that impact what yo
president. i think hillary clinton could be a potentially successful president. the same thing with joe biden. i think it's too early to determine whether either of them will run, although obviously the assumption is both of them will. regardless of what maureen dowd says, this is a race about each individual preserving their own record and their own legacy. i think it's about a clinton third term or obama third term. it's about that person running on that person's record. what susan is dealing with and what i'm dealing with in the democratic party is that the republican party it seems to me has lost its sense of seriousness with ted cruz and marco rubio to a certain extent each and rand paul who between them have, what? five years of experience in national government? the one candidate who is serious in the republican side, chris christie potentially, is not very well liked among republicans. he is better liked among democrats than independents. i think they have a real challenge on their hands. >> keith, i think you may see a real challenge when it comes to the democrats who are looki
